Pat won ACM Guitarist of the Year in 2005 and has been nominated for several awards over the years.


Growing up in Florida in a musical household (his father played bass in jazz bands while his mother is a singer), Buchanan was playing guitar from an early age. Graduating from the band circuit, he started his recording career recording on jingles for radio and television in Atlanta, Ga in the mid 80's. He went on to record on the ground breaking album, "Word Up!" with the hit funk band Cameo. He joined their US and UK tour before going on to record and tour with both Hall and Oates and Cyndi Lauper in the late 80's and early 90's.


In 1994 Buchanan moved his family to Nashville and became part of the Nashville session scene. He has since recorded with many artist and bands. Pat has also recorded on many songs on soundtracks for movies and television including the current running ABC television series "Nashville."
